Mossley band Cabbage make their live return to the festival after a busy year along with local talent Rory Wynne, Jordan Max and Phoebe Green.

Scottish indie rockers The View will perform their debut album Hats Off to the Buskers in celebration of their debut album’s 10th anniversary, while The Subways will also make their live return at the event.

Look out for Doncaster lads The Blinders, who never fail to deliver a killer set, and two special guests to be announced soon.

The inaugural event last year saw Blossoms, Circa Waves, Liam Fray, White Lies, Twin Atlantic, The Sherlocks, Louis Berry, The Pigeon Detectives and more perform to sold out crowds and receive rave reviews across the board.

Venues staging this year’s gigs include The Albert Hall, the O2 Ritz, Sound Control, Gorilla, Deaf Institute, The Zoo, Revolution Oxford Road, Factory 251, Underdog and the Thirsty Scholar.
